Of course, many days we transcend this. We realize our potential for invention, beauty, connection, resilience.
Other days we’re just a bunch of poop tubes https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Animal#Bilaterian_animals
The least bad solutions I’ve found so far are:
1. Manually sending all interesting longer articles to Instapaper and juggling over to reading them there, or
2. Rigging up a script to auto send every item from every long form feed to Instapaper instead
Both are not great.
We're looking for another mobile developer to join our team at Steamclock. This role will initially focus on Android, but will have a lot of opportunities to work on other platforms as well, including iOS and the web. Come help us build awesome apps. 🌈
My daughter (4) and I love playing Switch games together. I’ll control and narrate, and she’ll propose what we should do next. Sandbox and exploration games work great.

Addendum to this essay: “subtly gendered” words are another interesting category. Words like bossy, sassy, or feisty are mostly used to describe women and children, and it’s worth thinking about why. One attempt at cataloguing these here: http://sacraparental.com/2016/05/14/everyday-misogyny-122-subtly-sexist-words-women/
Two Birds, One Scone: On why evolving our vocabulary – not just the words we know, but the the words we choose – is worth the work.
Salesforce acquiring Slack feels like another “End of the Beginning” moment. Startups used to overturn established tech giants on a regular basis. Increasingly that just isn’t happening anymore – or at least, not often. A new era is upon us. https://allenpike.com/2020/beginning
I was able to find fixes for the roadblocks pretty quickly because I understand the moving parts – the final one being https://github.com/facebook/create-react-app/issues/9868 – but a newbie would have been stuck. It pains me that most web toolchains’ intro docs still lead to esoteric errors for most new users.
We’ve been hearing about developers getting nastygrams about fonts that are still in their app bundle but are no longer actively used, or where they had a license but not the right one. Now is a good time to double-check exactly what you’re shipping, and what licenses you have.
Is PATRIOT CARE just the same socialist system every other country has? No, it’s better! Matthew 10:8 tells us to heal the sick, and freely give. So we’re not going to raise your taxes, we’re just going to print the money you need – because the US dollar should work for you. 🇺🇸
American workers deserve freedom from unfair hospital bills! Don’t fall for the schemes of foreign drug megacorps. Punch pre-existing conditions in the face! PATRIOT CARE is way better than Obamacare. You get the same healthcare that your politicans get. It’s your right! 🦅
